dead fox

I looks so comfortable to lay down beneath this bush with a good view and then die. I hope it didn't hurt.

ICC shoe parade

The weather was fine. Interesting litter/trash. A wonderful collection of flip-flops. And strange: 2 similar surfing shoes but only left ones?!? A lot of sweets plastic sheets. International trash: Brazilian sweets, Swedish water bottle, Turkish food container. But most of all German sweets. Some were to disposed to pick up - the sun is working fast to destroy the plastic - it becomes porous and all tiny pieces go into the sand only visible under a microscope.
A strange organization made a beach clean up in Warnemuende: a cruising liners company! AIDA Cruises. Cruise liners are known to be environmental pigs. This "green washing" is perverse. And: the beaches in Warnemuende are cleaned up daily during the season - so there has been no litter at all to clean up?!? Just a PR show.
It makes me a bid angry.

short trip to denmark

Finally I bought a new camera - and I am sooo happy!!!! My trip to Denmark was wonderful and much to short. The tempo is sooo slowly there - like meditation. The people are sooo friendly! The beaches are sooo clean! And beautiful.
I think I have the Sunday evening Blues.
Next Saturday the International Coastal Cleanup Day will be organized by Ocean Conservancy. I hope you all will take a trip to your favourite beach.

It is the highlight of the year. "Hansesail" is an international meeting of 200 historic sailing ships from huge to small. It is a  fantastic show. Meanwhile the water has  good bathing temperature - 21°C. It is wonderful!!

15°C - still too cold to go swimming. For me! Some people here are so tough they do it the whole year through! We are happy to have sunshine at least - we´ve been waiting a long time this year. My art work is running low at the moment. I will be coming back soon!

beach cleanup canceled

Tomorrow springtime begins and we have a lot of snow and strong wind. So it makes no sense to do a beach cleanup. Sorry!! Will be postponed.

This trash I collected with my nephew 2 years ago after a stormy day. It took some time but now it is ready. It is from a lake in the centre of Hamburg called Alster. The trash from inside a city is a little bit different from the trash on the beach of the Baltic sea. More funny things. And everything is coated with a black haze.
At the moment there is an exhibition in Hamburg about plastic litter - I am curious to have a look.
